I recently had a reason to revisit my workflow for dealing with dvds and turning them into mp4-files. Here’s the new workflow that results in a video file that’s playable in QuickTime, on iDevices and a bunch of other devices and that has subtitles that can be turned on or in QuickTIme and iDevices.
- Rip the actual movie from the disc using MakeMKV.
- Transcode the file to an H.264 using HandBrake. Use the appropriate setting for the framerate and resolution.
- Make sure to include the Swedish subtitles, but don’t burn them in.
- Import the new file into Subler1, set all tracks to passthru except the subtitles that’s instead set to be ORC scanned.
- Export the final video.
